Flash was a standard supported by most web browsers and was used to show animations downloaded from the Internet. Nowadays Flash is considered unsafe and is being phased out in modern browsers.
Files that contain the .fla file extension store movies or animation files that have been created with the Adobe Flash application. These files are often saved as SWF files for use on the Internet.
